Homeopathy works…

Well, not really…

You see, propagators of homeopathy would have you believe that preparations made utilizing the “Law of Similars” (which is not a law at all.  It is simply a flawed concept created by the creator of homeopathy) contain active ingredients that can have a physiological effect on the body.  However, what you often do not hear from propagators of homeopathy, is that many homeopathic preparations are prepared/diluted to such an extent that only a few (if any) active molecules remain in a preparation.  Take the infamous 30c preparation.  As noted on the skeptical website Quack Watch (http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/homeo.html)

“The least amount of a substance in a solution is one molecule, a 30C solution would have to have at least one molecule of the original substance dissolved in a minimum of 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 molecules of water. This would require a container more than 30,000,000,000 times the size of the Earth.”

So essentially, if you consume a homeopathic preparation, you are just consuming water.

You read that right. 

Homeopathic remedies are simply nothing more than water.

With that in mind, a fellow skeptic has suggested the only plausible application of a homeopathic preparation.

This has been the skeptical samurai

Working to serve…

Through the process of inquiry…
